Louisville (3-3)
Cardinals quarterback Brian Brohm is having a hard time getting Heisman love when his team is 3-3 with losses to Syracuse and, most recently, Utah. What would the trophy race look like, though, if Louisville actually had a decent defense? Brohm's numbers are strong: He's eighth nationally in pass efficiency rating (167.5) and first among non Texas-Tech quarterbacks in both TD passes (20) and passing yards (2,415). In Louisville's latest debacle, Brohm lit up the Utes for 467 yards and four touchdowns.

Rice (1-4)
Lost in the shuffle of a few crazier upsets -- mainly, Stanford's world-shocker over USC -- was the news that the Owls, who started the season 0-4, rolled into Hattiesburg and upset C-USA preseason favorite Southern Miss. The strangest part of the game was the stat line of freshman "utility man" James Casey, who's listed on the Rice roster as a reserve quarterback: He ran 12 times for 38 yards, caught two passes for 16 yards, and also played defense, notching three tackles (1.5 for loss) and a half of a sack. "I'm exhausted," Casey told the Houston Chronicle afterwards. "I wasn't expecting to get in that much on defense."
